soelim(1)                        User Commands                       soelim(1)



NAME
       soelim - resolve and eliminate .so requests from nroff or troff input

SYNOPSIS
       soelim [filename...]

DESCRIPTION
       soelim reads the specified files or the standard input and performs the
       textual inclusion implied by the nroff(1) directives of the form

              .so somefile


       when they appear at the beginning of input lines. This is useful  since
       programs  such  as tbl(1) do not normally do this; it allows the place-
       ment of individual tables in separate files to be run as a  part  of  a
       large document.

       An  argument consisting of `-' is taken to be a file name corresponding
       to the standard input.

       Note:  Inclusion can be suppressed by using `'' instead  of  `.',  that
       is,

              ' so /usr/share/lib/tmac/tmac.s


EXAMPLES
       Example 1: A sample of the soelim command.

       A sample usage of soelim would be

       example% soelim exum?.n | tbl | nroff -ms | col | lpr
